The 'Paradise' singers say there's "no chance" they're having three years off and confirm a new album is on the way.

Coldplay have confirmed they're not taking a three year break, after speculation began at a recent gig in Australia.

Lead singer Chris Martin told the audience in Brisbane that "this is the last big show for three years or so," causing a stir amongst fans that the band were planning a pause in live performances.

But in a recent interview with The Daily Star, he explained: "I'm fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop. No chance are we taking a three-year break."

The band, which is one of Britain's most successful groups ever, have also announced they've begun work on the follow-up album to last year’s Mylo Xyloto.

"I've been writing songs and I'm so fired up about the band's future" Chris added.

Coldplay recently performed at the Olympic closing ceremony alongside fellow music stars Rihanna and Jay-Z.

They'll also be joining Jay-Z again on stage in New York for a show on New Year's Eve.
